Review of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 1: When She Was Bad

Updated on April 16, 2013

The first episode of season two. It isn't big or important experience, but does have some good character moments. Buffy is gone in LA with her dad all summer, and comes back with a serious attitude problem. She is a bit of a bitch to everyone she knows, without any real reason being given, other than she's upset.And Cordelia is the one who ends up being the voice of reason and letting us and Buffy know what's wrong with her. You know you're doing something wrong when Cordelia is the voice of reason, at least this early on anyway. Would say Buffy had no excuse to treat people that way, life crisis or not...but honestly we all have times like that, including me. And if friends and family weren't truly amazing at forgiving us for that, we'd all be alone. It's no big surprise that the vampires try to resurrect the Master. It is really surprising that Giles didn't assume that they would, and they either destroy the bones or do a better job of hiding them. Seriously? The local graveyard? Where 90% of new vampires rise? Wow. Either a major brain fart of intelligent people, or a plot device. Maybe both.Still. it's an enjoyable episode, if not anything special. But it is simply a set-up for what's to come in the new season. An intro episode.Taken as such it does that job well enough.

Plot: 4 Dialog: 6 Importance: 4 Comedy: 5 Romance: 5 Suspense: 6 Horror: 5 Overall: 5.
